If the best I can do is have my username changed, then I suppose I'll have to live with it.  Perhaps GS can change it to "Sitting coyote" when next he has a chance.

Thanks SD, I tried your suggestions but was neither able to change the username nor delete the account.  Would one of the moderators of this forum please either tell me how to delete this account or do it for me?

Sort of. 

I haven't given up on the idea that it's useful to eat raw meat, and raw food in general.  The ideas put forward on this website are getting a little extreme and cult-ish for my tastes, though, so I'd rather not be associated with the site anymore.

Moderators, anyone, how can I delete this account?  Does one of the moderators need to do it for me?

I was reading through a few threads this morning, and it struck me how we ALWAYS qualify any mention of eating an animal product by stating we ate it raw.  I ate raw liver, I ate raw beef, I ate raw lamb, etc.  Since this is a raw forum, I propose we all get in the habit of not qualifying every mention of food consumption with the term "raw".  I think we can take that as a given.

Even bison will run away from you, and they'll outrun anyone both in terms of speed and distance.

Persistence hunting works in very particular topography and climate, and no where else.  You need it to be very hot, or I suppose very cold.  You need to be hunting on a vast, open landscape where it's easy to track your prey and where it can't hide.  Persistence hunting wouldn't work in most temperate regions except in the winter, and even then you need an open area where the animal can't just hide.  Persistence hunting would be impossible in a forest, regardless of the temperature.  Trust me, I've tried it.

What I was getting at with my first post is that hunting with spears is an art that requires the hunter to learn stealth and master ambush.  I've gotten within grabbing distance of deer, and that's the distance you need for spear hunting, whether throwing or thrusting. 

Throwing spears is challenging, because it's a big motion and deer jump at everything, so you're almost guaranteed to miss unless you catch it completely by surprise and it doesn't see you throw the spear.  You also need space to throw, and the places that will hide you enough so that you can get close usually don't afford the space needed for a smooth throw.  Unless you climb a tree.  Many First Nation tribes carried spears, but I think those were more weapons to use against opposing tribesmen than hunting tools.

Thrusting, in my view, is easier because you can position yourself where a relatively small motion will put the spear tip in the animal's side.  With a thrusting spear the idea is to impale the animal, tackle it and pin it to the ground until it dies.  I suppose on something larger you might have to jump back and let it run off and die, then track it down once it's expired.  Or spear it and back off, and pray it doesn't attack you as even herbivores will attack when wounded at close range. 

I have an acquaintance who killed a fawn deer with a thrusting spear maybe six years ago.  It turned on him and kicked him in the chest with one of its front hoofs.  It hurt so bad he thought it had broken ribs, and he felt his heart beat irregularly for a few minutes before it regained its normal, consistent rhythm.  It turned out that his ribs were just severely bruised, though.  He says it was a harrowing experience, and he doesn't plan on doing it again.  And that was just a fawn.  Imagine going after an adult!  Or a bison!

Try getting close enough to large game to do either.  That will teach you worlds about how ancient peoples hunted.

I have both of AV's books as hard copies, and would like to sell or trade them.  PM me if you're interested.  I'd prefer to ship them within the United States, as it gets expensive to ship them outside.

AV's response definitely shows others at Rawsome in a poor light, but dues not explain why he is holding finds.  His withholding of defense funds was the original issue.  Why is he withholding defense funds?

Marrow is pretty cheap where I live.  I usually pay USD1.99 per pound, even when I buy free-range, antibiotic and hormone-free.

« on: September 28, 2010, 07:56:49 pm »
I think the question you raise is a red herring.

An animal's digestive system is designed to handle a certain diet.  Gorillas have a digestive system that is designed to process raw fruits and vegetables. I don't think they intentionally eat insects, but the insects they do eat are processed with the fruits and vegetables as best they can be.

We are not gorillas.  We are humans, Homo sapiens.  We are a different species, with a differently designed digestive system, and naturally do best on a different diet.

Inter-species comparisons are quite perilous as the basis for analogies.  I stay away from them.

I have many friends, mostly but not all female, who are vegetarian or vegan.  It is amazing to me what maladies people will endure and convince themselves that they are "healthy".  Finger nails that rot, thin and brittle hair, poor vision, rotting teeth, dry skin, constant tiredness, weakness, brittle bones, cuts that don't heal, I could type for lines and lines and lines...

It's as if they've been convinced that all of the above is a normal state of human being.

I'm glad I eat meat.

Shouldn't he have shot the bison behind the shoulder to take out the vitals?

Take out the vitals?  You don't "take out" vitals.  You can shoot the animal in the vital organs, but that doesn't kill an animal right away.  The deer I shot last fall was shot through a lung and part of its liver, and it lived for probably 15 minutes before it died. 

Think of all of the people who've been shot in the chest, sometimes even several times, and still survived.  This is another instance of the myth of the clean, quick kill.  Clean, quick kills rarely happen.

Unless you've killed game, it's hard to have a sense of what it takes to kill something quickly.  It's hard.  Your shot has to be perfect.  Even shots in the head don't necessarily kill large game quickly.

A friend once witnessed someone shoot a bison in the head with a high-powered rifle at 30 yards, and the bison didn't even seem to notice.  He shot it in the head again and it fell down, and as they started walking towards it the bison got right back up and charged them, then turned away and jogged about 1.5 miles before settling down to graze.  They caught up with it and shot it square in the head again with the same high-powered rifle and it shuddered, looked like it would charge again, but went back to grazing.  They shot it in the head a fourth time, and finally this shot took it down.  If it's this hard to kill large game with a high-powered rifle, it's all the more challenging to do it with spears, or arrows.

Even when you shoot something with a high-powered rifle, kills are seldom neat and clean.  The only reason the ideal of a quick, clean kill is still alive within our society is because most people don't hunt anymore and because the only point of comparison we have is the killing of domestic animals which we rarely see in person.  Most kills of domestic animals are far from clean or quick.  I've seen pig skulls where it took 2, 3, sometimes even 4 bullets in the brain before the pig actually died.  Cows are the same.  Some big slaughterhouses don't even try to kill the cows, they just want to immobilize them.  So one or two bullets in the brain immobilizes the cow enough to let the workers start skinning it, and the cow is essentially skinned alive, feeling the whole process until it goes unconscious due to shock.  It might not actually die until it is gutted. 

We treat animals like commodities; they've lost the quality of being alive and are merely products to be bought and sold.  While the videos of killing the elephants and hippos may seem brutal by our idealized standards, at least they didn't treat the animals like commodities.

For diarrhea in general, there are very few plant-based, non-grain foods that have proven to be helpful to me.  Cooked white rise is one, bananas are another, apple cider vinegar is the third.  I don't recommend eating other plant-based foods while suffering from any gastrointestinal malady, particularly nuts (I'm sad you tried Brazil nuts, really bad idea...)

The apple cider vinegar recipe I used was a teaspoon of vinegar in a cup of water.  Doesn't have to be exact.  And it shouldn't taste bad, about like very watered down apple juice (although don't substitute apple juice for apple cider vinegar).

As far as cost, it should be very cheap, even if you buy raw and organic.  I don't think I paid more than $2 or $3 for the bottle I bought, and I used only a tiny portion of it to get my salmonella under control.

Yeah, all chicken products are risky.  I got salmonella poisoning the one time I ate raw chicken meat.  It was free range, pasture fed and certified organic, so go figure.  I eat eggs fairly often, but am incredibly picky as to my suppliers.  I would never eat an egg raw that I bought from a store, only if I can visit the farm and inspect how the chickens are raised and where the eggs are laid first hand. 

I just got a few dozen eggs the other day from a trusted supplier, all fertilized.  They taste rich, and the yolks are a deep orange-red in color, and not from blood spotting.

I'd recommend against eating nuts of any kind, particularly while you're still afflicted with diarrhea.  Nuts are challenging to digest regardless, and would be that much more challenging and probably quite irritating if you ate them while suffering from gastrointestinal upset. 

Hopefully you can find some apple cider vinegar, even if its not unheated or organic.  I really think that will make a world of difference for you.  I hope you feel better soon!

Blood in the stool is common in Salmonella poisoning.  Just get any organic apple cider vinegar you can and give my recipe a try.  If you don't notice a big difference after a few doses, you need to see a doctor.  With all of the salmonella strains that are immune to antibiotics and the worry of creating more, they probably won't prescribe anything for you, just tell you to go home, lie in bed, drink lots of fluids, eat toast-rice-bananas-applesauce and rest until your body clears the infection.  Which might take weeks, or in rare cases months.
